First 5 Fresno County understands we cannot do it alone. We know that in order to have the greatest impact on children and families, we must leverage our resources and create strategic community partnerships.

Lasting improvements to the health and development of the county’s youngest residents are possible when community organizations, private agencies, families, individuals and First 5 Fresno County work together to mobilize support and services for young children.  We must leverage our resources and create strategic community partnerships.
